    Great Question!  I will be posting some discussion questions as we go through the book online that we can ponder and respond to along the way.

    Then the week before the Webinar I will post a list of the questions that seemed to generate discussion, and ask for suggestions from the group.

    ​Ladies, I've only read 3 pages in my book...I'm disappointed in myself. What is your best method of finding even 30 minutes here and there to spend as "quiet time" to read? I can't wait to dive in!

    I'd have to agree with you, Aleiha! It's difficult to find time to sit down and dive into reading, although this book is phenomenal. I've found books on tape works really well when traveling back and forth from work or instead of scrolling through my phone before bed, opening my book and reading atleast one chapter instead.

    Any other ideas from those who've been able to find time?

    It's hard to find time for everything. Don't get down on yourself. Consider that even if you don't get to read any more pages before the discussion attending that will still give you a dose of the content and real women's comments about it. That might be a reasonable and value added compromise. 

    I also find it challenging to make the time I want for reading. I use audiobooks so that I can do two things at once. Listening during my big weekly food prep on Sunday is a key time for me. Note, while less frequent I still carve out some me time to curl up with a good book for entertainment purposes and to get an escape from the real world. 

    Talk with you all soon.

    Reading stimulates the mind and promotes creativity, it is such a great benefit to continue reading and learning after formal education is complete.  Just like food nourishes our body, a good book nourishes our minds. So don't give up!

    Here are 5 tips to make more time for reading from a blog that have helped me:

    1. Sacrifice something. You've got 24 hours in a day. You spend 8–10 hours (hopefully not much more) working. You spend 6–8 hours sleeping. You've got family and friends to spend time with every day. All of this doesn't leave much time for other interests, like reading. So your golf game, like mine, might take a hit. You might have to turn off the television after 9:00 p.m. But, if reading is a priority, you'll make time for it. As Jon Acuff puts it: "Be selfish at 5 a.m."

    2. Make a routine. If I say I'm just going to "find time to read," then it will never happen. I have to make time to read. So here's what I do: I read during my lunch break, and I read at night, beginning around 8:45, after family time, after the wife and little guy are in bed.

    3. Set a goal. You've heard this so much that it's clichéd. But it works. My goal is to read 101 novels. Usually, I would've given myself a deadline, but I didn't want to speed read through the books, so I just chose to read them as they come. At my current pace, I'll reach my goal in three more years. Maybe you should set a goal to read one book a month. If that seems unlikely, then make it one book every two months. And take it a step further-tell someone about your goal. Or, if you're crazy like me, start a blog about it. There's nothing like that extra accountability to keep you moving.

    4. Have fun. You don't have to read a book simply because a friend suggested it, you know? Think about your hobbies, interests, and passions-then go and read about those subjects. I once spent five months reading nothing but casual, behind-the-scenes books about restaurants and chefs. I'm a chef groupie, I guess. Once you've read a few "fun" books, then dabble into the more serious, thought-provoking stuff.

    5. Mix it up. Once you get into the flow of reading, branch out of your comfort zone. If all you've read is nonfiction business books, then relax a little and pick up a novel. If you've plowed through Stephen King's entire catalog in a few years, maybe it's time to give a leadership or inspirational book a try. The point is: If you read the same style of book over and over, you'll eventually get burned out and go back to watching two hours of Brady Bunch reruns every day,

    As Dr. Seuss says, "The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."

    And who's going to argue with Dr. Seuss?



    Here is a link to a TED Talk by the Author Sheryl Sandberg on the subject and book.

    Thanks for sharing those great tips Holly. Also, thanks for sharing the TEDTalks video. I offered up the upcoming book group discussion to many other women in my organization as well as an internal discussion and a common response was that they didn't have time. I'm going to re-pitch suggesting they watch the 15 min video. Hopefully that will feel doable and we can get increased awareness and more internal discussions going here.

    Please let those women know that this book is a very easy read. And completely worth it. Or, direct them to the audio book.

    Hi @Jessica Murphy! Unfortunately it was not recorded. Since the book club format is an interactive roundtable format, we did not record it to encourage frank discussions and take-aways (especially since this topic can blends the professional and the personal).

    However, I'm sure we'd be happy to share some points of discussions! @Holly Kutil did a great job leading it. The some of the topics were self-doubt/impostor syndrome, feeling guilt, and mentor-ship. There was a lot of discussion around feeling comfortable expressing boundaries and saying no in order to provide an efficient workload and work-life balance.

    I shared my favorite work philosophy, 'Shine Theory', when discussing if there's any patterns when working with other women (collaborative vs competitive). It means "I don't shine unless you shine" - which is to actively help and take pride when others at your company or team reach their goals - even if you aren't specifically singled out.
